My new favorite cousin GaVe this to me.
87 FJ60 manual trans 230k very straight new interior.
Starts right up but over heats and no smoke out of the exhaust.
Also no coolant in oil. Brakes, rubber, radiator all shot. Hasnt been on road in 5 years.
A trusted mechanic is saying it needs pretty much everything and quotes $4.5k - 5k to get her back on the road.
So? Is it worth it? I have always wanted one and I think I'd drive it another 20 years.
I was going to buy a Landrover to tinker with but this may be a better cheaper option.
